The Sindh High Court (SHC) directed the Sindh inspector general (IG) to form a committee for the recovery of missing children as early as possible.
According to a local media report, a two-member bench, headed by Justice Naimatullah Phulpoto, heard the case and directed the police to use the latest techniques to ensure the recovery and questioned why an FIR has not been lodged against SHOs of police stations, within the limits of which the children went missing.
It was also reported that of the 36 missing children, 13 had been recovered and 24 were still missing. The SHC was informed that four-year-old Bisma disappeared from Korangi No 5 on June 5 while 12-year old Muneera was missing for three years.
“No more patience can be shown in the case of missing children,” the bench remarked.
Seeking a report from the police, the court adjourned the hearing for three weeks.
The SHC also gave time till September 18 to the commanding officer concerned to submit a report after completing investigations for recovery of missing persons, including a Pakistan Navy officer, Imran Yousuf.
